Hours after two moose were seen in Pirita Woods in Tallinn on Tuesday, police in Estonia warned drivers of a young moose spotted moving around the nearby Lasnamäe District and Pirita-Kose which had already caused a minor crash involving a motor vehicle, daily Postimees writes.

The Police and Border Guard Board (PPA) wrote on social media that the young moose was seen by the Olerex gas station on Katleri Street around 3 p.m., and some time later in the woods in Kose, Postimees writes (link in Estonian).

The same moose was also involved in a collision with a motor vehicle near the gas station in which nobody was injured.

At around 5 p.m., the PPA followed up on social media, stating that they had not received any more reports of the moose in town and noting that the Rescue Board had also searched for the animal.

Police reminded drivers that if they see a large wild animal in a populated area, they should report the animal's location as precisely as possible to emergency services at 112.
